Or whats a tip I should use like I try sliding but my wheels just won't come out from underneath me maybe it's cuase of the wheels I'm not sure but if you could itd be nice for s little input I'm the only longboarder out of my group of friends and I wanna do sometricks!
Very sorry dude, I totally missed your message! It’s definitely best for you to start learning with the coleman slide. Gear-wise, you’ll want to get a set of slide gloves and some slide-prone wheels - narrow contact patch, small size, harder urethane, and stoneground surface with radiused lips. The gloves are crucial for hands-down slides and are a great safety net, while slide-happy wheels will be much easier to learn on.. much less grip to fight against. There are some great tutorials on youtube to teach you the mechanics. All the other slides are more or less a progression from there. Best of luck to you!
